Reaching Goals In The New Year – Hello 2018

Ahhhh oh my goodness, hello 2018! Anyone else just as stoked as I am?! I always love the idea of a fresh start whether I’m trying to change something or not. This year feels like a new beginning with endless opportunities. I have a good feeling about the next 12 months – how about you?!

There are so many things I’d like to accomplish in the next year for not only myself but my blog too! I thought I’d share what’s been on my mind lately as well as my plans for the future!

Blogging Goals

My blog goals are pretty simple. I want to learn more about my audience (i.e focus more on trends and what others are interested in), invest in a new lens or camera for better photography, and find a way to help other influencers grow! If I can accomplish those three things in 2018, I’ll be happy!

Of course there are smaller things on my mind too like learning how to shoot portraits better and make my Instagram embody more of me instead of product shots. But I feel like those are always on my mind!

Back To School

The biggest goal this year is to get back into school. I loved attending college and felt like I had a purpose for getting out of bed in the morning. I miss learning and educating myself in a structured setting – something I never thought I’d miss. I’m in this funky part of life where I don’t know what to do next and I’m hoping this new college endeavor will help me unravel something great.

Buying A Home

The next thing on my list is buying a home. My husband and I have thought about this for a while and since he’s returning from his deployment soon, now is the perfect time for us to buy. Despite the cold winter weather, we’re hoping to find a home we like fast and close on it quick. When we both want something, we do everything in our power to get it. Doesn’t matter what stands in our way. The pre-approval is official and we’ve already been eyeing some options. Fingers crossed it all falls into place!

Travel Often

This upcoming year I’d love to travel more or just as much as I did in 2017. I went to Florida twice, Texas, Indiana, and Cuba just to name a few! My husband and I already have a weekend trip to Minnesota in March planned but I’m thinking there will be many more trips ahead. A couple in particular I’d like to see include New York and Canada!

My resolutions sound incredibly easy to accomplish when typed on the internet! Let’s hope I’ll be able to check off each thing on this list next year! What do you want to accomplish in 2018?! Leave a comment down below to share your thoughts!
